Note: There are minor spoilers in this post. Not about plot things, but about characterization. I don’t think it will ruin the movie for you, but if you want to be extra careful, don’t read this until you see The Force Awakens
I saw The Force Awakens Thursday night, but I wanted to wait until the weekend passed until I posted about it. First, it was magnificent. I want to shake JJ Abrams’s hand for revitalizing the franchise. Second, Disney can go to hell for declaring most of the expanded universe books non-canon (though they still plan to incorporate some of it). They were great. In my mind, I’ll always consider them an alternate reality, like DC’s Earth-2. Those books are too good to be forgotten.
Now for what I really want to talk about: The Dark Side.
Psst. My novel, The Watchmage of Old New York, is only 99 cents until New Year’s Day. The reviews are incredible so far, and if the popularity of the serial version says anything, it’s that you’ll love it. Spend a dollar, find your new favorite book.
